AU goals and priority areas of Agenda 2063
Agenda 2063 has a fifty-year horizon with five ten-year plan frameworks. The first ten-year plan is focused on issues pertinent to the period but aligned with the expected outcomes at the end of 2063.
The key underpins for the selection of the goals, priority areas and targets for this first ten-year plan, which should be seen as a sub-set of the fifty-year plan framework are areas where the African citizenry expect to see immediate implementation within the context of the African Aspirations – these areas constitute the flagship programmes of this first ten year plan, the short / medium term development focus of member states and the RECs, on-going continental frameworks that fall within the next 10 years and targets within the Agenda 2063 which fall due within the next ten years.
The focus of first Ten-Year Plan of Agenda 2063 should include the following areas: Sustainable Inclusive Economic Growth; Human Capital Development; Agriculture/ value addition agro-business; Industrialization / Manufacturing and value additions to natural resources; Employment Generation; and Social Protection.
